Andrew Seybold - The Rush to 4G

Over the next year, we will be hearing more about the network operators' move to 4G all over the world. I see the shift to 4G as inevitable, but does it need to happen as soon as LTE, for example, is finalized and the first equipment is built? We are hearing wonderful things about LTE, but the data rates and capacity increases being bandied about are theoretical and based on using 20 MHz of spectrum.

A rather skeptical market view of LTE and WiMAX in the short term, which I agree with in some degrees, by a prominent industry figure. - hgm
